The majority of Americans have always been opposed to Obamacare, but have not yet felt the true pain that will emerge as their costs go up and their access to medical care goes down.
Except for the moochers, of course, the Obama voters.
Obama did run on Obamacare, right John? He was not only elected, but reelected. Right John? Off of that alone, what conclusion must one come to John? That's right, the majority of Americans voted for Obamacare! Not only voted, but re voted for it, right John? Now, I won't lie, I've never read the provisions of the bill, so maybe you're right about the bill being a sham. We'll have to wait & see, but you can't deny the fact that democracy was a success in terms of passing "universal healthcare." You can oppose a persons ideology without opposing the person. That's where you people take it too far!

Hey dumbo it was your party and the worst president and Vice in our history that made a hero of him as long as it fit your madness. Does it ever bother idiots like you that you sacrificed millions of lives for your lies?

OBAMA IS ABOVE THE LAW

Washington Boro, PA

#901046 May 11, 2013
(NaturalNews) Barack Obama can't seem to make an appearance on the international stage without blaming America for all of the host nation's troubles. The latest example of this disgraceful behavior comes as part of a grotesquely ironic and hypocritical display in Mexico, where the president shamelessly pinned Mexican gun violence on the United States, but never uttered a single word about how his own administration is, in large part, responsible for it.

During a May 3 speech to Mexican university students, Obama dusted over the issue of drug violence to infer that, were it not for American guns, Mexico's numerous cartels would be much kinder and gentler or, at least, not as well-armed.

Per Reuters:

Drug-fueled violence in Mexico is not entirely the fault of the Mexican people, he said. Instead, the United States shares the blame because much of the violence is centered around the Americans' demand for illegal drugs and the fact that guns are smuggled into Mexico from the United States.

"In this relationship there is no senior partner or junior partner. We are two equal partners, two sovereign nations that must work together in mutual interest and mutual respect," Obama said.

What unbelievable hubris, to say nothing of revisionist history.

One of the many administration scandals getting a pass
But the hypocrisy did not stop there. Continuing, Obama actually vowed to jail American gun smugglers - an act that has been illegal in the U.S. for some time but which, according to his "see no evil" approach, does not apply to members of his own government:

"We recognize that most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States...we'll keep increasing the pressure on the gun traffickers who bring illegal guns into Mexico, and we'll keep putting these criminals where they belong - behind bars," he lectured.

Let's review - because you can bet Obama's enablers in the mainstream media sure aren't going to revisit this huge scandal.

Obama told Mexican university students he will continue to jail American gun smugglers ("we'll keep putting these criminals where they belong - behind bars"), but he conveniently left out of his speech the fact that he asserted executive privilege regarding documents tied to the Justice Department's botched "Operation Fast and Furious," a "gun-walking" scheme concocted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms in collusion with Justice in which agents allowed guns purchased in the U.S. by straw buyers to "walk" across the border into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

The operation was run out of the Phoenix ATF office. The aim was to trace the weapons once they were obtained by cartels but the operation failed dismally. It began in the fall of 2009 and only ended in December 2010 after Border Patrol agency Brian Terry was murdered by one of the guns in Arizona.

Since then, more than 300 deaths in Mexico have been linked to Fast and Furious guns; hundreds are still mission. Worse, no one within the Justice Department has been held accountable for this heinous operation, and no one has said who developed it or who approved it.

Even the easily duped will finally tell the truth when the evidence is too overwhelming. At least it's some degree of vindication.

Let's hope they don't revert back to spinning and watering down the facts after they've had time to think about their betrayal.

Seems like a new day has dawned. Took a while for me to get my head around it this afternoon.
Fox is no longer the only voice crying in the wilderness. The liberal media have finally snapped out of their Obama-induced semi-coma. Took a while, but better late than never.
It was almost surreal watching the flood gates open today at that press conference.
What appear almost 'surreal' are the fits and spasms of horror that you go through for something as inconsequential as editing 'talking points' about the causes of an overseas attack on one of our consulates? Isn't that what we ought to expect from responsible government officials to update their press releases as more information came in about the event?

Only clueless idiots think that Israel is our dear friend... Sure they are as long as we dance to their music..You clueless puppet. Tell me exactly why we cater to them . Surely it couldn't be because you actually think that they are the chosen people? Or your great redeemer was a Jew...Why should we be their keeper...Giving that God belongs to them...What's his major malfunction?

Move on people, nothing to see here. Much ado about nothing. Why can't you ask why Congress has not acted to provide more funding for embassy security and order Obama to use the money to strengthen our security forces there? That'll solve the problem quicker than he said/she said hearings .

"Democrats have dismissed the Republican attacks as politically motivated and they had not gained much public momentum until this week. The ABC report could draw fresh attention to the allegations, however, and give them new life."

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/05/10/us-...

Since when are journalists supposed to wait for public momentum to investigate and hold those in power accountable?

They finally had no choice but to accept the evidence and report it.

But we should have been where we are now 7 months ago if they had been doing their jobs.

If nothing else, Fox News and conservatives are now vindicated.
